WindUp Trailer: Animated short created with Unity

Get a sneak peek of Unity’s newest animated short, Windup. Windup highlights the fragile nature of life, love, and what it means to never give up.

This film is created in real-time in out-of-the-box Unity 2019.2, the animators used regular desktops that most CG artists have at home. The result was achieved, by setting strict rules about poly-count, as well as what features they could afford to use. Such as using pixel displacement instead of tessellation shader; using joints animation instead of animation caches. We can’t wait to share the full video with you later this year!
